I could care less if you care or not... I am just saying if it works for you then keep doing it. You have your way and I have mine, neither which is the wrong way as lond as the end result is the same.

Recently I had to go back to the old method of Simple Green (cleaning) WD-40 (bearings) Orange Pledge (shine + dust repellent). It just is not the same and does not do half as good of a job.

Any suggestion for any one of the mentioned products.

Thanks
I can drop ship to your door...PM if you have a ? and for price!

I used it before and it worked good. I race with JR Mitch, Billy Easton, Jason Ruona, and a bunch of other fast guys and the way I clean my car is the same way they do. Everyone has their own way...even the fast guys. Good luck with everything...

Why don't you just order from them directly? And I think Alan @ the speed shop sells it as well. I knock off all the big stuff then grow it in the dishwasher. Then relube and done.

If you got a air hose I don't see the big deal with useing the water hose. Im not familiar with all these other cleaners. But you don't use any water at all? Just 100% cleaner? And how do you rinse it? Sounds like ALOT of money in cleaner if your soaking and rinsing in 100% cleaner.. and the car wont get rusty after useing it? Seems like the after wash maintenance would be exactly the same. Just alot less chemical use rinsing with water.

+1

Pledge and a toothbrush then an aircompressor works magic. I still breakdown my car after every race but use Pledge on plastics, chassis, etc. Just picked up an ultrasonic cleaner from Harbor Freight and am using that with some 1:1 simple green/water for metal components/bearings.

using kal-gard 30-30 on metal peices after cleaning actually prevents rust issues

Simple green use a tooth brush hit with air then pledge done. Works great on LIDS 2 give it a whirl trust me.

Also when you hit with pledge sit in the sun for a few it works even better.

Track day the dust comes off easy
